2015 CR-V Named Motor Trend SUV of the Year

Friday, March 6th, 2015

When you stop by Kokomo Auto World to test drive a new Honda or two, be sure the 2015 Honda CR-V is on your list. This SUV was just named Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year for the 2015 model year. Many things were changed on the CR-V including design, engineering, performance, efficiency and safety features.

Engineering and Performance

Honda revised the 2015 CR-V’s powertrain by installing a 2.4-liter “Earth Dreams” engine with direct injection and a lighter, die-cast aluminum block. The new engine makes 185 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 181 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm. While the horsepower remains the same, the peak amount does come in 600 rpm earlier. The torque increased from 163 pound-feet of torque.

The engine is backed by a continuously variable transmission with a torque converter and “G-design Shift Logic” to get rid of the feeling of driving with a rubber band as the link from the engine to the wheels.

Safety Features

While there is no IIHS test as of yet, engineers supposedly reinforced the 2015 model year’s cab with hot-stamped high-strength steel; and the company fixed the engine compartment crash structure. The CR-V also features — depending on the trim level — collision mitigating braking support, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control.


According to Motor Trend, it could cost you up to $35,000 for cost of ownership over five years. This is less than the class average. Plus, the CR-V has an excellent resale value.
